    Hurray for the Riff Raff: "JUPITER'S DANCE"

    Hurray for the Riff Raff (aka Alynda Segarra's) “JUPITER’S DANCE,” from their 2022 Nonesuch debut, LIFE ON EARTH. Segarra says “Jupiter’s Dance” is: “A song in the shape of a guardian angel. Protection prayer for us all as we live in uncertain and violent times. Manifesting blessings into reality. Posing the question that perhaps the future could be joyous as well as terrifying?” The video, directed by Segarra, is a collection of historical footage of the Bomba and Plena traditions in Puerto Rico, clips Segarra shot on a hand-held camcorder during lockdown, recording studio footage captured by Joshua Shoemaker, and visuals of outer space from NASA.
